Survival mode...

With the first snow of the season laying comfortably on the ground, I can faintly here the giggles of all the little flakes...."we're baaaack".

We live less than 5 minutes from 3 grocery stores, why is it I feel the need to stock up 2 months of food and supplies? We have enough wood to keeps us going for a long time.
Our furnace hasn't turned on in over a week. Throw 4 logs on, turn the vent down and that will stay burning for about 6 hours. We go through most of the winter with only our wood stove as our only source of heat. The upstairs is currently reading 77 deg.

Dark at 4:30, snow, Christmas music playing....winter is here.

I'm jealous.

We had some snow today -- big, thick, cotton-y flakes.

They didn't stay.
